Mourinho hits back at De Boer over Rashford comments

Marcus Rashford made quite an impact on his return to Manchester United's starting line-up.

He incurred the United manager's wrath by telling BT Sport that it's "a pity" Marcus Rashford plays under Mourinho after the England worldwide marked his first league start of the year with both goals against Liverpool.

After all the discussion of whether Rashford is fading away under Mourinho at Man United, the Special One threw him a start against Liverpool and he kindly paid him back with a brilliant brace to win the staunch rivalry.

"When you are younger than I am, and you are learning the game, I think you do need it". Rashford is an English player and you want to give him time and he may make mistakes, but Mourinho is not like that, he wants results.

"I read something, some quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League, Frank De Boer - seven matches, seven defeats, zero goals". If he was coached by Frank, he would learn to lose because he lost every game.

In the most comparable situation, authorities prosecuted the gunman who in 2012 opened fire inside a movie theater in Aurora, Colo., killing 12 and wounding dozens more.

"I try to give the best to [Rashford]", Mourinho said.

"They scored goals in Liverpool, drew the match in Liverpool". He was Mourinho's most used player in 2017, with 61 appearances for United in all competitions.

Mourinho went on to credit United's academy staff and his predecessor Louis van Gaal for their role in Rashford's development and insisted the player remains in safe hands under his own leadership. What he was saying was not good for Marcus Rashford to have a coach like me because the most important thing for me is to win. When a team gets into the last eight, the feeling is you are among the best and anything can happen.

Pogba had been an injury doubt due to the leg injury he suffered at the end of training on Friday, however, Jose Mourinho was hopeful the France midfielder would be fit to start. "I don't know yet [if he is fit to play] but he trained a little bit", said the Portuguese boss. "That's pretty much where I'm at". It's good that you can be around him to have a laugh and reassure him that it's going to come good and that if he gets a chance he will perform and he has done that. "It's kind of been sorted out but we're still talking about it so there is nothing to totally confirm yet", he said.
